Renewals / Mature Couples


O Love we see our very Autumn now,

But in our fall we hold each season's prime.

My youth, manhood and age rest on your brow;

Engraved deep, your womanhood on mine.

My March, your April frosts, swift, foolish May,

Our June's richest laughter we hold in store,

For when our darker season comes; then say

Those words of candlelight once said before.

Then Love you are the window to my days

And I your glass to memory's green hour;

So I in you and you in I find ways

To slip the hand of Time's inquisitor.

Reflection then shall fill our wintertime

And faces. I in yours, and yours in mine.


When evening falls, I look up and there you are.

I take your hand and we turn together to look at the road

we have travelled to reach this milestone.

It stretches behind us and it stretches ahead,

a long, winding road, whose every turning means

discovery, old hopes, new laughter and shared tears.

The adventure has hardly begun.

Love Me When I'm Old

Love me when I'm old and shocking

Peel off my elastic stockings

Swing me from the chandeliers

Let's be randy bad old dears


Push around my chromed Bath Chair

Let me tease your white chest hair

Scaring children, swapping dentures

Let us have some great adventures


Take me to the Dogs and Bingo

Teach me how to speak the lingo

Bone my eels and bring me tea

Show me how it's meant to be


Take me to your special places

Watching all the puzzled faces

You in shorts and socks and sandals

Me with warts and huge love handles

As the need for love enthrals

Wrestle with my damp proof smalls


Make me laugh without constraint

Buy me chocolate body paint

Hold me safe throughout the night

When my hair has turned to white

Believe me when I say it's true

I've waited all my life for you
